- Wedding: February 2018
Hello Fellow Bees…..
I’m getting married in January and recently I’ve been expereinceing what I call “Bridal Anxiety”. I feel like I’m constantly dealing with issues and thus not being able to enjoy the wedding planning expereince as I should.
My BM is bitching at me all the time about this that and the other thing and been doing nothing but causing me grief. I also have this fear that someone will make a big announcement (engagement or having a baby) at the wedding that will end up taking the focus away from us, or they will end up doing something or wearing something that will also detract from us and our big day. I have family members and friends who are like this….my BM that I mentioned before is one of them.
I’m also stressing about people not returning their RSVP cards. I sent the outstanding people friendly reminders to let them know that they need to send them in or they won’t be counted as coming, I have yet to recieve any responses back from any of them.
I’m also stressing over the fact that one RSVP card came back where someone took it upon themselves to invite someone else but didn’t specify who the other person was. I handed that task over to FMIL to deal with since it was her brother that decided to add the extra person, we don’t have the funds to add extra people.
FI wants me to change my last name, I don’t really want to, as I have a unique last name. I thought I was comprimising by stating that I would either hyphinate the last names or keep my last name but keep it as a middle name. He is totally against all of it, he wants me to take his last name because he thinks that is the right way to do it and it would somehow affect his “manliness” if I didn’t.
I’m just feeling overwhelmed and stressed and I get kinda pissed off when people say “you must be getting so excited!!”., well know what I’m not!!
Has anyone else gone through these types of emotions or is currently going through these types of emotions?
